Come join the Society for Technical Communication (Canada West Coast Chapter) for this speed-networking event.

The evening will start off at 7 p.m. with an introduction of our panel of local recruitment specialists who will speak on the niceties of networking, how to make a great first impression on those you network with, and what not to do when you’re looking to connect for professional reasons. Then you’re going to have an opportunity to put the experts’ pointers into practice because we will break up into pairs to ‘speed network’ for about half an hour. This should be enough time to connect with 4 or 5 people whom you’ve never met who may be a direct ticket to your next dream job! We’ll model speed-networking on the idea of speed-dating: you will be face to face with another person and have 2 minutes to describe who you are and what you are looking for, and then 2 minutes for the other person to do the same. Then the buzzer will go off and one person will move to the next chair, and one will stay put. For additional information, please see the link below:
